All the members of the company’s Board of Directors were called into the Chairman’s office, individually, one after another, until only Ted, the junior Board member, was left waiting outside.

Finally, it was Ted’s turn to be summoned.

Ted entered the Chairman’s office to find the Chairman and the other six Directors seated at the far end of the long boardroom table.

Ted was instructed to stand at the other end of the table, which he did.

The Chairman looked Ted squarely in the eye, and with a stern voice, he asked:

“Have you ever had sex with my personal assistant, Miss Floyd?”

“Oh, no sir, positively not..!” Ted replied.

“Are you absolutely sure…?” demanded the chairman.

“Honest, sir, I’ve never been close enough to even touch her…!”

“You’d swear to that?” demanded the Chairman.

“Yes, sir, I swear I’ve never had sex with Miss Floyd, anytime, anywhere.” insisted Ted.


Good! We appoint you to fire her.
